Title: Are you a problem gambler?
Post by: OneUnderBridge on May 27, 2017, 06:50:42 PM
Not everybody has a problem gambling, but if you are a problem gambler, there is a support network they may help you. It starts with you recognizing the problem.

Start here:

Are you in need of support? Is that why you started this thread, or is it just to make others aware they can get help?
The first step in fighting your addiction is admitting to it. I never had problems with self control, so if anyone asks for advice I'll be happy to help.

Took the test...."Most compulsive gamblers will answer 'Yes' to at least 7 of these questions."  I answered "Yes" to 10 of them but I don't feel I have a REAL problem other than spending too much time gambling when I could be spending more time with my family and friends.  Good thread though....I have some experience so I will participate.  I don't think gambling is wrong if it's done responsibly....so I can provide some insight into that general area....hopefully not in a negatively enabling way.

Took a quick look at the website.They're limited to United States.Gamblers here,the addicted one's come from other countries.Campaigns like this doesn't do any wonders until the victim is treated in person.

I have people in my life that have serious gambling problems so I feel compelled to reach out. We can all use a little support every now and then. I started this thread because I know there are people on the forum that may benefit from some guidance and I know there are people on the forum that have their own experiences who can provide some valuable insight. So why not get the two together?

I was thinking that if they took the test it would help them put their concerns into perspective in relation to others who might also be suffering from the condition.

I agree with this. Such sites are usually used by the addicts to put their conscience at ease. The next day they go back to gambling just to return to the site again and again. Real life support works much better, especially if you have a family member or a friend that keeps an eye on you.

Not a bad idea. I doubt it will really make someone quit gambling, but it's much better than doing nothing.

Support is always good, problem is with people who won't admit they have problems until they reach bottom.

A truly addictive gambler that's really on the point of unimaginary status will not ever recognized the problem just by reading online. They will never understand some of the words that they may read online and especially those questions asked at the given site because their mind are now closed.

The effective way of helping them are by those people around them physically since real words are important rather than just advice that is read on the internet. But you know the set of questions at the site is helpful to those average gamblers that is still not on 100% addiction.

A lot of people's gambling problems can be solved by learning some money management (bankroll management) techniques....but a true problem gambler doesn't have the discipline to practice proper bankroll management schedules....they rationalize it away or are too compulsive to stay focused....

The gamblers in my life do a great job hiding their problem and they don't talk about it much personally. They get angry or defensive when it is brought up or questioned. That's why I was thinking that something like this would help. They might secretly realize they have a problem but not want to present the problem to those they care about. Talking to somebody on an anonymous basis may be the help they need.

Gambling addiction can not be stopped by someone perhaps if he's addiction is severe. Sometimes, only himself can make himself. However, it's good that there is a service like that so there is a possibility that gamblers who has an addiction in gamblimg coul be lessen.

If a person decides to stop gambling then he/she can find many good ways to come out from this gambling addiction. But if someone is forcing them not to gamble then they will not stop and find many ways to gamble even though family members put pressure on them. That's why first gamblers need to decide that gambling is not good and they need to find ways to stop.

This is quite helpful for most of the gambler who often experience problems. But it is difficult to eliminate this problematic feeling, because that must move and participate it from yourself. So when there is no strong sense of desire from ourselves then we will still find it difficult to get out of problems like addiction. The writing is quite helpful and inspiring of course, the application in life that will determine the good and bad results.

Most people don't realize that they do have a gambling problem until the reality hits them. That's when they finally realize that they have fully isolated themselves from people, ruined relationships, and have spent all the savings that he's been preciously holding for years. It's pretty hard to find someone addicted to something that still has a full grasp on reality. Most of them don't see the truth and as long as they are doing the thing they are addicted to, they are going to be fine.

Gamblersanonymous is like AA or alcoholic anonymous. I bet that's where they got the idea.

Well i guess personal experience and the power of will are the factors that will help us to overcome this problem since most of the gamblers are not admitting that they already engage and really ruined their lives until they already got nothing inside their pockets, its a nice of you sharing and trying to help how to see more people around who already overcome this gambling issue to proceed and share thier own stories.

I think you are talking about a problematic gambler were people are addicted and they want to stop or quit in gambling there are someone has this part of addiction that they can quit but sooner gamble again.. those people needs help not only their self i think only family and friends can help them for their problematic gambling attitude..
Honestly i was addicted before and stop because i know i am just wasting my time and money but i still gamble it is because gambling are made for fun sometimes i am gamble and sometimes don't in my own i can control my self even i am addicted it is still depends in you if you really want to control your addiction because no once can control your and fight against addiction..

I have problem in gambling but not of those of very intensive that needs rehab centers. Most gamblers here are not really into ruining there future but i see it just for fun. Losing an amount for me is bearable but not really in betting money that i cant pay. It's ok for me to lose a weeks earnings as long as i am not in debt. And gamblers like cant be seen or found if forums like these rather maybe in streets or in physical gambling places.

I'm old fashioned and i find every kind of motivation in my family, and they been there for me so many times when i was in bad situations, so i always find help there  at least i get consolations, and peace of mind. sometime maybe they can give good motivation.. Serious problems must be taken seriously, and if you cannot recognize your problems others will, and maybe can help you. But addictions cannot be "cured" without professional help!

I once had a big problem with gambling addiction, but that's not all because I used to think gambling is the main source of income and can afford to pay all my mortgage debt, big problems happen when I'm not having luck, my misfortune comes not stopping. Finally I sold my wealth assets to cover all the debts and quit all the online businesses in a long time.

But it's all been a thing of the past, now I've come as a more mature person, nothing better than consciousness to learn from mistakes.

Gambling is addictive thing which is followed and invest the fund unwantedly in the any mode such as casino, betting, games or more. People will continuously invest the bitcoin whenever they see lose or profit. Once they will become a empty pocket in that. Then only they will realize to move out of gambling,

most people who have gamble for years and make it as a source of income will surely had more than 7 yes answer , as they gamble in regular time hard to avoid the fact that the chance for people who did it won't get addicted and had a serious gambling problem.

keep telling the bad things that could happened because gambling are of course better rather than lure people with a good winning story to play.

Precisely, it is basically people who do should learn some gambling money management techniques. Because however gambling directly concerned about money management. And it all takes the price level has good management, because all it takes poise, intelligence, and also a good self control. I see that it is indeed money management technique is absolutely necessary, because it will be concerned on the strategies that will be used.

Definitely not, I am not a problem on gambling but certainly gambling if abused could result to worst problem ever. This could result to worst situations in your life because it will loss all your profit if you depend your future from it and in reality no one prosper from gambling activities. More stories telling about gambling negative effects to their lives, but still those affected were ignorimg it and don't give attention. If gambling activities will be abuse, and it exaxtly involved a lots of money to be wasted from extreme bettings on games that earns gambling rewards on winning; so you became addicted by having more bets expecting more lucky days and end up lossing.

Definitely not. You know when to gamble,how to gamble etc. Without good knowledge,skill, edge it creates problems which you need to handle later. You cant afford enough time to your family,relatives.That's not good relationship behaviour  between you and relatives. But dont forget this line: They dont like gamblers, they like only winners ;)

Gambling never give us any problem, except Addiction. I see in this thread, may be it helpful for addicted persons. But also it is our duty to control ourself that we never come in that stage, where we lose everything only for gambling. Our weakness and our weak decision wise, we come at this stage where we think gambling is a problem. Although gambling consider a way of enjoyment and entertainment, but when we lose ourself than it convert for us in a problem.

But also it is our duty to control ourself that we never come in that stage, where we lose everything only for gambling. Our weakness and our weak decision wise, we come at this stage where we think gambling is a problem. Although gambling consider a way of enjoyment and entertainment, but when we lose ourself than it convert for us in a problem.   
I think you have the wrong idea. The cause of addiction is gambling, and it can give you the problem, addiction, it is the one who causes it then the effect is an addiction. There are a lot of people that are excited in gambling that they lead them to addiction and in the future, make you balance lower and probably going to make you poor if you don't behave as such. It should be considered as a healthy way of enjoying.

Let's work on this together, you're not alone and you don't need to suffer from your addiction. If you have solutions or have the compassion to provide moral support, please help by participating in this thread.
My hearty welcome to your start up. I will try to give what ever support I am able to. I just read a slogan : If we feel the pain means we are still alive and if we feel the pain of other then it means we are still human. I just want to be human so that I can help the gamblers who are in problems.

Gambling never give us any problem, except Addiction. I see in this thread, may be it helpful for addicted persons. But also it is our duty to control ourself that we never come in that stage, where we lose everything only for gambling.
Addiction is more dangerous one than anything else which are causing any inconveniences/financial damages. So, we cannot ignore that gambling is not giving any problem. A gambler's life threatening problem is caused by gambling in terms of addictions.

There are a lot of people that are excited in gambling that they lead them to addiction
Yes, there are lot of other possibilities are also there by means eevry gambler is vulnerable to be addicted. We must work on preventing addictions. If that is not possible then we must work on curing addictions, for that purposes OP's initiative will effectively work, I hope.

Definitely that suppose to be done, it should be a healthy way of having fun but the opposite is happening to some of our friends, instead of having fun they are stress in gambling because they try to solve the puzzle and fight the battle despite the fact that they do not have a chance of winning.
Once they will be addicted the real bigger problem will begin because it is expected they will lose more money.

The only problem in gambling is the addiction, it makes us lazy. So it would be better if you will only play on your free time. Play it with enjoyment and don't pressure yourself because it will give you stress. I only gamble when I know I have extra money because I realize how value it is.

Well, that's actually true. It makes you lazy, the fact that you want an instant money out of your gambling problems or just gambling ways, that's how can become impatient in some stuff. That's one way you could gamble and not be overwhelmed with the debt that you are going to have because it will limit yourself in your deposit.

If you like to see what you could do for yourself, then check the site. You could really evaluate yourself with that site, and there are a lot of things that the site offers and you could really be helped with that. It would be stressful if you try to check yourself and not accept it would actually make yourself tired and make things worse for you.  Make yourself responsible for your decision making.

Its just really a survey and support doesn't really work anytime if yourself cant really help it first on quitting gambling. Addiction would really be a serious mental disease on which it really makes you to play gambling no matter what. Those questions posted are good but most of them are significance of a gambling addict.

That is the correct to do. Everyone should play this way, just with the money people are afford to lose to prevent future issues in real life, familiar issues, financial issues. If you are in control nothing can goes wrong, the problem is when you lose control over the game and start spending, spending... Until lose all the money.

Yes it is, gambling is the main cause of addiction but the problem is also to a gambler who don't have discipline and self control and allowing him or herself to be addicted to gambling if just people know how to stop and stay cool in gambling or not allowing him/herself to be tempted then you can prevent to be addicted  to the gambling

But addicted gamblers don't admit that they have a gambling problem. This is really the first step to help them to quit gambling, but it they don't want to admit it, then its hard to help them. I'm not a problem gambler myself, I know when to quit, specially if I'm ahead of the game. Of course I may have loss here and there but I don't think to recoup it though because I know that if I do, I will be addicted to gambling.

Everyone will admit one day when they don't get money to play gambling or when they get the problem in their life, and they don't have money to solve that problem. When all gamblers face this situation, the everyone will admit this. Come to me I am also not an addicted gambler, and I will not spend more time in gambling I have control over my emotions.

when you have an addiction it is not enough to just try and control it because it is an impossible thing to do especially if you are addicted for a really long time. To be honest I don't have any problems with gambling though I used to play poker a lot and I used to lose tons of money until I understood that I need to change something in my life. I think gambling should be banned actually because it is like a drug that it's hard to get away from.

When you are a long time gambler then you really need some advice reagrding on that addiction. Some people even sell their own properties and steal just to have something to bet in gambling. (I've seen someone in my town stole a horse just to bet in a cockfight). Some really need some psychologist and rehab because it's a hard habit to break when you are a long time gambler. You know it for yourself if you can control it but if not, then you really need some help.

Addiction is really based on the player or the person. If he has a high level of discipline then he can never be addicted. Or if he is smart, he knows the consequences of his actions when he tries to roll the dice. And usually, smart people don't really gamble since they don't want to risk it, knowing their chances of winning.

Smart people also do gamble but in smarter way of gambling. A problem free gambler must be an addictions-free gambler. I guess a gambler must work on how to safeguard himself from not getting addictions at first place. Because when he is capable of not getting addictions, he might get chances to win in gambling.

To be successful in gambling, we must not be into problems. When we are focusing not getting addictions then we can easily achieve success in gambling.

I don't need to click on that to know what is there is just common sense in which anyone going into gambling should already know without needing anyone to even tell him or her. Gambling is an activity even an economic one where you can either win or lose based on the position of chance either to you favor or against you but a fundamental thing is to be prepare to lose in other to avoid stories that touch.

The questionaire will surely help those who have compulsive gambling to determine if they are already on that stage or not.  Aside from that, those questions will help a newbie to know what things he have to avoid in order for him to avoid being a compulsive gambler. 

And if we found out that we are already a compulsive gambler, we should see a specialist and have this problem treated.

i think very few people may have the element of high discipline, while rest of the people do not follow any discipline, in gambling, most of the people even do not have any planing for playing gambling, most of the gambler play gambling without any planing and that is the reason that most of the people are addicted to gambling and for most of the time they lose money in gambling.

And this is the problem, being addicted to gambling is not that easy to control, especially when we already lost too much. So, if you are going to do gambling, make sure that you are not going to fully attached on it and will only focus on it because it is not a really good idea, you wouldn't like the result of gambling to yourself, I'm warning you. If you are going to gamble, make sure that you are setting an amount of money that you are going to use in betting, and if that money is already gone because you have lost it all, then it just mean that you have to stop and call it a day.

No one can control them brother, I have been betting since quite sometime and I know I will always loose, I am having no fun but whenever I get my salary I just start gambling again and again without any thinking, sometimes realizing is not always working. I mean you need someone controlling you like your parents, friends, society or something whom you fear and stop gambling, that's the only way.

So what that you admit to yourself that you addicted? It doesn't mean anything, it won't make you stop gambling. The only way you can actually avoid gambling or something is to find some other hobbies that would get your mind away from gambling or just seek the help from the doctors. Basically you cannot help yourself with the addiction of gambling just like with every other addiction.

Also gamblers wont really accept or tell others how much they would lose. Sometimes they even tell they lose even if they won. Cause these heresy is to avoid misfortune if ever someone would try to ask money out of goodwill. Extreme gamblers are like these even if they would give it would after the day they've won. But some basic gamblers just give away money after a win and even party harder if they would lose.

Sometimes I forget a lot of things if I really enjoy the round in gambling, and this has always been a problem for me.

Yup you already become an addicted gambler, so the addition is not a problem for you. You said gambling is the 2nd wife that means you will not get sleep if you do not play gambling daily. I don't know about your financial system I think you are a rich kid so if you do daily gambling also you can afford that loss. I hope one day it will destroy your life is you not stop gambling. I am suggesting, please control your feelings and try to avoid gambling it is good for future.

From the questionnaire I'm clearly not a problem gambler :)

They weigh all the questions equally though, but I think some are way more important than others to identify a real problem gambler.

i just smile when i read your reply regarding to forgetting many things while enjoying playing gambling, as its also what happen to myself i let myself being seriously researching to find advantage regarding to the players/teams that I'm going to bet, well i guess that's the problem when we already focusing to much and allow gambling to take control of the big part of our mind.

No I Can't tell that Im a problem gambler because I only gamble when I feel it. For example i feel the urge to buy a lottery ticket and ticket from raffles then I Will buy. Sometimes when I go to festivals and try some dice and ball games and enjoy myself. I think you will be a problem gambler when you are getting addicted to it and I hope that I wont be like that.

Getting addicted to gambling is a personal choice. People just don't become an addict just like that. They chose to bet and they chose to deposit more and more money into the casino even if they are losing tons of money. If you get addicted even slightly, stop gambling! It is not healthy.

interesting, most of the people consider the word addiction as one of the worst world to be use for a person. but i think if a person is addicted to gambling it is not so much risky as the way through which people play gambling. for example if a person do not have any planning and he also play gambling without any limit. in such situation gambling is risky, but those people who have good strategy about bitcoin and he always play gambling  with in a limit and who have good control over their emotions they are playing gambling in most safest, so we cannot all such person as a bad gambler.

Perhaps, there's no time will the problem will occur if I'll be one. The only problem we can say is that if it is uncontrollable, addictive and compulsive. Uncontrollable is easy as you cannot stop gambling, just like being addictive to it. Compulsive is when you see a land base gambling place, no one can stop you for getting inside and start gambling. Just like compulsive shopping. I donít have gambling problem. I easily get move on from the lost.

In gambling, if we have no addiction, then gambling is good entertainment way where we play games and spend fun time. But in gambling, as uncontrollable is necessary, otherwise every gambler have a problem from gambling. But i realize only weak mind and weak personality gamblers have a problems.

Even you read those quote there and learn some lesson the one thing that can help you to solve your problem in gambling is to have discipline your self  or avoid your self playing too much in gambling if you don't discipline your self and always goo on the flow maybe you will be too addicted to it until your money runs out. Gambling is good for entertainment only enjoy it but know how to control your emotions too.

It is more than If you are always thinking positive stuff when you gambling even if you lose it is OK, that I think if unrealistic, because gambling really works in random winning and losing so gamblers really can become addicted or not addicted to it and you can not control the fact that you become addicted or not to it, because I think you can not control the urge in being addicted to it, there are some that will really be addicted and sometimes that addicted person does argue that he is not really addicted to gambling. but you can really make a bet and hope you will not cling to being addicted yourself.

From those test results and your behaviour of gambling, I understand that you are not addicted to gambling but there are big chances to get addicted in coming days if you are not taking any steps against your gambling activity.

I can say you are in the beginning days of gambling or not enough frequenting to gambling so that you are staying safer till today. I like to suggest you to gamble more occasionally so that you will never get addicted like how you are doing now a days.

It is simple and only one word to describe this strong mind gamblers.  They have self discipline.  They are able to control themselves and stop according to their will.  And with experience, they tend to know the rules and the things to know on how to engage different situation in gambling.  They can also nullify the urge to win more beating greed and keeping it under their control.  If a person have this discipline, he can really enjoy the benefits of gambling in human life.

the benchmark whether are you a compulsive gambler or not depends on how people look at you , i mean when people around you says like that then it might true you are a compulsive gambler especially when you has consulted with a professional in gambling problem. take it easy as long as it's not yet destroy your life or something like that.

I'm not addicted, I purely gamble for fun, but I hope that this post reaches at least a couple of people who might click the link and get help for their problems.

It's definitely a good thing to have posts like this here from time to time.
It seems to me that most people who have a gambling addiction do not believe that they are not violent gambling. Of course there are people who combine some increase with the game in the casino, but this is very rare.

Also gamblers wont really accept or tell others how much they would lose. Sometimes they even tell they lose even if they won. Cause these heresy is to avoid misfortune if ever someone would try to ask money out of goodwill. Extreme gamblers are like these even if they would give it would after the day they've won. But some basic gamblers just give away money after a win and even party harder if they would lose.

Extreme gamblers are like this even if they will give it will be after the day they had won. But some of the basic gamblers only give money after the win and the party is even more difficult if they'd lost. so they decided this problem in gambling so as not happening too lose all owned

i think if someone still playing gambling for a long time, then he can become a problem gambler because i think he can not realize that playing gambling can not guarantee to give stable profit and we have big chance to make big loss. there are many people trap in this situations and they still don't realize with their situations and still continue to playing gambling. but if they can realize that they need to leave the gambling place for their own self then they need to do right now before its too late for them.

This is quite familiar, because at the starting days people will be winning big but they don't know to manage. So they continue to gamble. This periodically gives a loss and at some point the fear catches them whether they need to focus on gambling or not. Some reduce their focus and make them active in other activities. Some to have fun continue it trying to overcome the loss. Here few will be successful and a few becomes impulsive gambler.

I am not a problematic gambler at all. During a lot of years that I have played slots, sport betting and poker I learned a lot about self control and patience which are key to success in gambling together with knowing when to quit. Problematic gamblers are those who play without a plan and think that they will be rich from gambling, that is wrong and it will only lead you to lose more and more money over time.

If you don't want to try the gambling you can't realize what is better to ourselves and what could be the benefits of gambling in our life. For me, much better to spend time in gambling as entertainment purpose than using this for earning profit because I think this will be the problem. Gambling is not profitable at the end, to avoid problem I play for friendship and I bring small amount of money to avoid greedy and to avoid addicted in gambling. Additionally, I know that gambling is a problem but I try this because its part of our society and gambling is interesting game.

But from that, little by little I began to understand and better know how it is gambling, and how to win. And now feel better with it.

You would really gamble on this case since you are watching someone who are on games (poker) and yet you are knowledgeable on game its wont really be removed that you would really like to tried out the game. Its cant really be avoided to play gambling when you are really dont have idea on it but we should know the risk on playing gambling too much thats why its important to have a good self control.

Yes, to solve gambling problems, we must start with avoiding gambling as mush as we are able to. Quitting gambling completely will not feasible for many people, but reducing the number of times we go for gambling must be possible for anyone, from that they must try to stop gambling completely.

When we are not into gambling frequently then any level of gambling problem also will get eliminated. I mean even financial problem also will get a solution when there will be no more losses to occur.

If we are really determined , a little by little progress is good enough , trying to avoid it and finding ourselves not playing it often is a good indication that were one step ahead of getting out in addiction, when we realized past loses and making it as a lesson learned experience can also be a sign that we acknowledge that losing is part of gambling, so theres no need to make it a big problem.

It's good for you mate for keeping the distance when it comes to gambling yes because otherwise you'll probably end up losing a lot of money. I also have the same attitude towards gambling just want to have fun and entertainment even if I win a lot I make sure that I control myself not being greedy in the long run knows my limits.

Me too, I don't have any problems when it comes to gambling. I play if I have free time and if I want to but I see to it that I won't lose huge amount of money. Knowing what being addicted to gambling can cause you does help to avoid it. Setting limitations and  having self-control to avoid being greedy is a big help.

I am also sport in playing. I see to it that if I have loss already, as soon as possible and without looking coward to the other players, I quit the game. That will be much better than trying to win back the money.

The problems that gambling can inflict are not solely about money. When a person's level of addiction has reached the high one, they will tend to ignore other things outside of gambling, for example, their daily job. So, gambling could just make a person go bankrupt and lose their job at the same time if they didn't careful enough. May we not be part of those people!

More stories telling about gambling negative effects to their lives, but still those affected were ignorimg it and don't give attention. If gambling activities will be abuse, and it exaxtly involved a lots of money to be wasted from extreme bettings on games that earns gambling rewards on winning; so you became addicted by having more bets expecting more lucky days and end up lossing.


Somehow, it seems very normal for us to ignore important things. You are right that even if many have been telling their problems when they became a gambler, many would still continue to ignore the fact, that gambling is very dangerous. Many people would still continue to play and I am one of them.

I know that playing gambling is fun and dangerous at the same time. The fun and the excitement that I get might instantly turn to greed. But I believe, that knowing the consequences helps. I play but I see to it that it is just for fun and I limit myself from betting high amounts by bringing a certain amount only. This is the reason why I don't have problems in gambling.

For Mazda a gambler it's time to stop. Actually, I do not play for huge sums, but by that a little bit, you can play a lot. I almost never win a huge catfish. And it affects my budget very much.

That's good, if you don't want to lose much but still want to gamble, just play a really small amount everytime. Like 1mbtc is enough to enjoy yourself. Since most casinos offer as little as 1 satoshi per bet, that would give you a lot of games before you even run out of money. Well that is on dice though. Some games like slots sometimes require higher bets and sports books are the same.

If a person is a problem gambler i think he would not be admitting to it, I guess that he/she would believe that what he is doong is normal and that he controls it. It would be very hrd and unusual if a problem gambler can identify that he himself is one. Thankfully a large network and number of support groups are already in place to help them.

Yes I think bitcoin gambling sites can help people who just want to find fun from gambling because only in bitcoin gambling sites we can bet with 1 satoshi and for other gambling sites it does not seem to exist.

That's good for you mate if you managed to turn back on gambling and continue with your work. Not most people given a chance to getaway from gambling..well which I think it's their own choice.

May be it is better for you, to left gambling. Because now you are student and i don't like it when student spend their precious time in gambling, and also it is not a age OF play gambling. In this age you would be addicted and couldn't earn from gambling, only lose the money, just like you. So you choose a right way and left the gambling for a time, I am sure after some years when you will be young then start gambling, you would be a good gamble. But about me, in the started, i also couldn't manage myself in gambling but now with the passing time i have learn from gambling.

Problem Gambler? Is that the real term for that? Maybe you can just say an Addicted Gambler because that is the real problem when you are a gambler. Most of the time many gambler became addicted because it is the easy way to earn money, also digital currencies and also if you experience a big win. So I think even if you are not sure if you are addicted or a "problem gambler", you must take the test.

When you are a student its very risky to engage on gambling because possibilities on using the money you have is there which means it will mold up problems ahead. Addiction is really a serious problem once it hit to yourself and its really hard to get out once youre in it. Problem gambler isn't really a good term since we do have always a problem when we do play it which is losing money.

I have been gambling for years since I learn poker games when I was in high school. Playing gambling is really fun and playing with friends and especially old people are very challenging. I have no problem when it comes to gambling. I am aware how being addicted to it can affect me, my life and even the people near me if I ever became addicted. I have a strong discipline for myself and very strict about money. I see to it that I wonít be using money higher than my allotted amount, sometimes I only brought a small amount to avoid that.

Yes, any kind of and any level of gambling problem too could be the cured if the family members start contributing into the gamblers' resolving process. But most of the gamblers do not share their problems with their family which is the main reason they are facing severe problems over time.

Gambling affects physiologically most of the time, it needs love and affection to cure. I read many addicted gamblers have quit gambling completely with the help of their family members.

There are very rare cases but there are no solutions but for a normal addict instead of staring at your loses daily go out to a garden daily do some jogging divert your mind, go to your home live with your parents for few days , go to a animal shelter these help you to calm down and realise your mistakes

What is your basis that it is not an addictive activity? There are numerous studies pointing to that gambling as something that could be well classified as an addiction which is a mental problem similar to getting addicted to drugs and alcohol. Yeah sure it can be diverted, but not all gamblers especially the addicted ones can do this because they have something wrong in their cognitive functions.

I think with the help of a psychiatrist everyone could cope up and divert their minds into something if they could just follow them correctly, and everything is gonna be fine. A daily exercise and meditation could also help the problem gamblers even the alcoholic and smokers addict could have change if they really just set their minds correctly. They need to put a lot of effort to it if they want to stop of what they are doing is not healthy to them.

I think psychiatrist help if the person is eager to help.  Without personal interest to recover, a psychiatrist will do nothing.  It is always the persons will and decision that will decide if he will recover from being gambling addict.  I also agree with you, to support my claim that it is the persons decision, since you just said that if they have set their minds correctly.  Meaning they need to act and put in their minds the right thoughts and decision to improve and return to normal beings.

Gambling for me is not a problem. I don't often gamble. I can see how it can become a problem though. I can see if I had carried in making big bets I would be in trouble and in too far and spend time chasing loses probably ending up in more loss.

The problems that gambling can inflict are not solely about money. When a person's level of addiction has reached the high one, they will tend to ignore other things outside of gambling, for example, their daily job. So, gambling could just make a person go bankrupt and lose their job at the same time if they didn't careful enough. May we not be part of those people!

I have to mention that also addicted people become very angry and they always have bad mood. They don't go out often, they rather stay at home, they even become antisocial, which leads to loss of friends and maybe even family. Money is most important thing that gambler can lose, but there are many less important things too.

Gamblers who become addicted eventually become anti-socialists. Their minds are fully occupied by gambling only and most of the time, if they are not playing, is when are they going to play again. They are always uneasy and if they want to play but you stop them, they would suddenly turn into someone who seems different from who you know. These are the effects of getting addicted to gambling and should be cured or treated as soon as possible.

As for me, I don't have any problems when it comes to gambling. I have control and I always managed to avoid playing unnecessarily.

Hmm. I don't think the addicted gamblers become anti social. In a sense they tend to shy away because they think that most people would questions their habit in gambling. But if they experience a big win, for sure a gambler would treat all his families and friends. I only see a problem if they have lost big and try to borrow from someone who he used to help when he was winning and that person didn't give the money he needed. The gambler will feel betrayed by this and thus may result in a tension between the two and the friendship ruined.

There is no need to say if someone is antisocial - therefore he is more prone to addiction or is addicted already.

I started this thread because I know there are people on the forum that may benefit from some guidance and I know there are people on the forum that have their own experiences who can provide some valuable insight. So why not get the two together?
Support is always good, problem is with people who won't admit they have problems until they reach bottom.
And sometimes they do not even admit they are addicted when they hit rock bottom, those people will probably never learn and get out of the horrible gambling addiction in their life time.

That's true, it's until it's too late when they try to ask for your help in whatever they needed. I think, there is a reason in this world that we are not alone. No one can really live alone on an island, probably that's going to make you crazy as you continue to live there.

that's actually the basic thing to do to avoid you have a lot of problem caused by gambling. but well people really couldn't care even a little bit about this. they prefer to just keep going no matter what , and as for the result in the end nothing good happened not even you get back your capital . far from completely profitable.

Money is important for every person in this world. To earn money only people do a different kind of jobs and make money. But making money from gambling is not a good idea. Yes if we lost our wallet we will get angry, and we become sad mood few days. Same thing will happen when we lost bitcoins in gambling. Those who realise this fact they will not get addict to this gambling. But those who not realise this fact they will addict gambling and spoil their life.

Not only this site, you can find a lot of useful information online if you are willing to change your life for the better. You have a problem in gambling because you are addicted so quitting should be your main focus and you have to do things that will help you because it's going to be a long process.
Also, seeking advise from your love ones is a big help, they see what you are going through because they care for you.

Losses and then facing problems are most common for any gambler but if you are managing yourself not facing any problem due to gambling then you must be doing gambling in the right way how it should be played. Honestly it is not possible for most of the gamblers here, your must be lucky, you are already into right way of gambling, keep it up.

If gambling is a way for you to cope up with your problems, then you're likely in store for more problems than the one you currently have. If you have a problem, never resort to gambling to forget or find solutions. It almist all the time.makes it a lot worse. Its even more foolish than drinking alcohol as thia involves you making decisions with money on the line. The fact thatbyou have a problem you're thinking about makes it hard to make rational and sound decisions in gambling

I really think gambling should not be treated on a positive way, and it should be done in moderation, yes you can surely play a bet on gambling, and it certainly created a fortune for some other people by getting a crack of money out of every bet they make, but I really think it shouldn't be a positive thing for people to really give in to gambling, because the and risk and addiction is really around the corner if you really be involve in it, and just like you said self control is really important but not a thing over playing a gambling bet, but if you can keep out of it it is more good to do it.

You just lack of control to yourself, you need to understand that gambling isn't just a simple thing that you bet and have an instant win. There will be times of struggling that you can't even win a single penny.

I use to regret that I ever gamble and will always blame myself and the house about my losses which is not a good thing.

You shouldn't blame yourself or anyone for it, you just need to fix your gambling style in able to grow.

Thing is, I gamble even more in terms of frequency and money nowadays. Damn, does that mean I'm not as much of a degen as I thought I was? I feel like I "failed" and that I am just a plain old boring "sensible"/"responsible" gambler. LOL.

Maybe those gamblers that are addicted to it really thinks that they can be rich in gambling.

Every person tries to fulfill his basic needs first and once they are met, they demand for more. This is why gambling attracts people even when they bear this fact in minds that it can cause failure, they still hope for the best. Helpless and hopeless they are indeed!

Sometimes gambling goes beyond being a recreational activity and becomes a problem. If gambling has not effected your life negatively then you are lucky, but if it does negatively impact your life then you may need to seek some support because it is very difficult to walk away without help.

This could help if a gambler can visit them physicaly because they can give more advice and demonstrate more the things that may help him to quit gambling or to avoid playing gambling sometimes the gamblers doesn't need it as long as they can control their selves avoiding to play, Some of gambler are risking more money for the sake of the profit. It will test you and also gives you a situation that you will test how far your patience is.

To gamble such a smart player might easy said than done , at least maybe when you hold yourself to not get heated to gamble more on your winning could considered as a smart move isn't it? That's just a small picture . Do gamble in cool situation everytime if you could.

Gambling is good for entertainment only enjoy it but know how to control your emotions too.
We are the one who can really help ourselves, so if we don't have determination, we cannot meet our goals. Out of control from addiction is hard to leave but once you can have a determination to stop from it you can make it step by step.

Exactly because all we want is just to enjoy gambling and to make money sometimes but only to the point that we should be spending the amount that is allocated for gambling. We will become problematic if we go beyond our limit because in that situation we are beginning to lose control, just be smart and make sure you don't be dictated by your emotion so you will last and enjoy in a longer time.

Because of your addiction you had sold your property? And now it's gone? Don't put your properties at stake this is a very big problem. Many gamblers are at this state and you are not the only one. Make sure first that you can pay your debt and try to recover from this devastated situation that you did all along.

I think most gamblers didn't noticed themselves getting addicted to this habit at first as they are treating it as a part of their daily life or they will never admit that they had been addicted and they will only start realizing it once they had lost too much not only a money but also the other special things or person . Moral support or advise from other people is not first actual solution that they need to get for that, what they really need at first is their self to accept their own situation as well before other people accepts them and also they need to be motivated by their own at first to stop their habit in gambling .

Before I had more free time and I could gamble for hour's without any distraction. Times has changed and now I have more obligations, its how its goes when you are free and when you have wife. I never thought about myself as problematic gambler, now I gamble much less and from money I earn on a side, so even if I lose no one criticize me because of that.
Problematic gamblers are just people who forget about all obligations in life and gamble everyday all day, or most of the day. After some time close people and family feel that absence, and they suffer from that. I gamble just in my free time and no one suffer from my gambling!

Yes, you should try to avoid this kind of problem. Personally, i don't have any kind of problem when i gamble, because i can control myself when i do it. I always play with a low amount, and i don't consider it like a source for getting profit, I don't effect my finanical situation or feel bad to do that.

It's great when you can control yourself in gambling, I can not do that. To me, it's really hard to do because my gambling problem is that I can not control emotions, I always feel angry and annoyed when losing continuously for a long time, I also tried very hard to set the limits for myself but everything was useless, I always get over the limit and the result I get is that I lose everything

And that's going to be a problem. If you're playing against the house, you'll probably be tempted to use up all your money making bet after bet. If you're playing against a person, you'd expose yourself through emotions which places you in a big disadvantage.

Nope im not a problem gambler because i am not addicted in gambling. A problem gambler are the one's who are addicted in playing gambling. Some of their problem in gambling is they dont have anymore money to play gambling because they've lose in playing. To remove your addiction in gambling you should stop playing little by little and changing your habit like playing sports or working out.

It is a good thing that there are surveys that are trying to identify if you are a problematic gambler or not. But I think there are better steps than answering this questions. A person who has a problem gambling needs a lot of social time especially from his own family in which he or she can interact and share his addiction. Sharing a problem makes it less powerful, the addiction will loosen its grasps from you as there are other people who can help comfort you and fix your problem.

I think most of the gambler who has a lot of problems are those people addicted in doing gamble in the gambling site.  But not like me just doing it for amusement only but not taking it seriously as my profit.
You're right if someone is addicted in gambling then they will be a problem gambler because they will keep on betting and will not care if they will lose everything they have.

Almost every gambler has a problem. whether in the game or inside them. sometimes there is also a problem in mental. because now it is not about the game but the mind and ourselves

Sometimes I have a problem gambling.  I tend to binge gamble.  Trying to get away from it though.

Yes, you should try to avoid this kind of problem. Personally, i don't have any kind of problem when i gamble, because i can control myself when i do it. I always play with a low amount, and i don't consider it like a source for getting profit, I don't effect my finanical situation or feel bad to do that.
It's great when you can control yourself in gambling, I can not do that. To me, it's really hard to do because my gambling problem is that I can not control emotions, I always feel angry and annoyed when losing continuously for a long time, I also tried very hard to set the limits for myself but everything was useless, I always get over the limit and the result I get is that I lose everything
gambling won't give you any problem if you stay on the line , not crossed over the limit . stay cool whatever happened especially when you suffering lost , unfortunately yes everytime it gives you a lot of problem because lack of discipline , people tend to ignorant show the cold shoulder.

hard to avoid problem in gambling when you keep repeating common mistakes.

I think that by gambling, we have to admit to ourselves that we do have a problem,because by deciding to gamble we have already lost the money in the first place and no one in his or her right mind would easily give away his hard earned money. Most of the time we lose when we gamble by still doing it we know there is something wrong but because we know we are going to hit thejackpot soon we know it's worth it.

But that's the point ; staying on the line itself is a hell of a trouble. It is soo difficult to control one's temptation especially when someone is addicted to that deed. Furthermore, you can't remain cool with your losses. It tickles our inner a little bit at least. Gambling is a hell of a task. That is the reason no one can manage gambling without excuses. At some stage all gamblers may face some problems which may lead to life threatening excuses too.

And that problem is on how they are going to control themselves when they gamble. Each gambler are going through on this stage and at the end of it many comes to an end resulting to addiction. That is the new problem that each gambler is facing, after not controlling themselves, they are now addicted gamblers and more problems are generating from those few problems that I mentioned.

This is what we can call a responsible gambler. Every gambler should really do this. Gamble only what you can afford to lose and do not expect to profit from gambling. Most of the time people that gamble money they can't afford to lose becomes miserable after they gamble. Then people that think they can profit from gambling end up bankrupt by the end of the day, because they keep on chasing losses and telling themselves it is part of the profiting process.

That sounds like a responsible gambler indeed, but don't forget that there are probably many gamblers who started out doing things responsibly to then slip and become problematic gamblers anyway.

I think it's also very important to be honest with yourself and recognize it when you're starting to slip and not lie to yourself about it.

I don't think the guy will slip or perhaps I don't want another person to become a victim of gambling and suffer its curse. However, I am not a problem gambler because I am not even a gambler... :p

then we maybe will always see a lot of player having problem with gambling , nobody can really have a full control over their gambling habit , it will always run so wild no matter how hard you are trying to avoid and deal with those potential problem.

join several social club to distract and solve it together are a great idea , do that if you want to avoid your problem become worse

I'll say this again people get addicted to gambling but it has been proved that it is  not as addicting as smoking and can be solved by the person. There are very rare cases but there are no solutions but for a normal addict instead of staring at your loses daily go out to a garden daily do some jogging divert your mind, go to your home live with your parents for few days , go to a animal shelter these help you to calm down and realise your mistakes

What is your basis that it is not an addictive activity? There are numerous studies pointing to that gambling as something that could be well classified as an addiction which is a mental problem similar to getting addicted to drugs and alcohol. Yeah sure it can be diverted, but not all gamblers especially the addicted ones can do this because they have something wrong in their cognitive functions.
You never know a addicted gambler is totally unpredictable he can do anything to recover his loss and at a point of time they run out of funds they still want to recover their loss but don't have the funds so they might end up doing some wrong thing

These kind of addictions does really give a big problem or consequences on our life if we do tend to continue to do it.People are really different on anything,some may do something when they are on stress time or just doing for the sake of leisure and entertainment.Talking about gambling,self control would really be a big thing on here because if you do lack this then expect to be addicted into it later on.

Well you are stating a fact here.  Lots of people I known that have control on their gambling activities on the previous years had now lost their control.  My neighbor for example, we had him fixed our bathroom shower that day, he then start the job but then when his friend invite him to play poker, he then leave the job unfinished and play with his friend.  It took another day to finish the job.  Though as I remember it, he is able to reject invitation when working a few months back.

I doubt that people could really set a limit and control themselves everyday.
As at some point they will try to break it and make money successfully for a while.

When someone loses in any game, definitely the feeling he gets is not a good or enjoyable one but when someone loses money and keep on facing such defeats, then he becomes a victim of frustration, tension and anxiety. Gambling is a very addictive game and dangerous at the same time so it is better to stay calm and show no greed.

If someone has no addiction to gambling, then playing it on a repeated basis is not a problem at all. Gambling or the gambler becomes a problem both for him and the society as well when he is addicted to it in some way or the other.

Bro! Ask me, IMO repairing from addiction of any sort gives a tough time. It is not the game or drugs that we are addicted to, it is those feelings those reasons that push us towards such things in the very first place. We are addicted to those emotions and want to experience them once more.

Mate, you're completely addicted to gambling. Base on your explanation before that you don't mind losing and you spend more time in gambling that's a problem for every person who just gamble. But the best part of your story is that you are able to resolve that problem by lie-lowing and congratulations with that achievement.

I'll say this again people get addicted to gambling but it has been proved that it is  not as addicting as smoking and can be solved by the person. There are very rare cases but there are no solutions but for a normal addict instead of staring at your loses daily go out to a garden daily do some jogging divert your mind, go to your home live with your parents for few days , go to a animal shelter these help you to calm down and realise your mistakes

What is your basis that it is not an addictive activity? There are numerous studies pointing to that gambling as something that could be well classified as an addiction which is a mental problem similar to getting addicted to drugs and alcohol. Yeah sure it can be diverted, but not all gamblers especially the addicted ones can do this because they have something wrong in their cognitive functions.
You never know a addicted gambler is totally unpredictable he can do anything to recover his loss and at a point of time they run out of funds they still want to recover their loss but don't have the funds so they might end up doing some wrong thing

Well for these types of people, gambling sometimes is perceived to be a way out for some. Like alcohol is for an alcoholic person.it can give instant but temporary relief for people who are undergoing hardships so they can't in a way be blamed also.
you might be right but alcohol is more intense than gambling alcohol causes serious issues to your brain and your conscious which can be recovered after some time but gambling affects your money which can leave a mark for life long. Alcohol is drinking addiction but gambling addiction is only because you want to recover your loss in life we will have lot of situations which will give us a loss but grieving about it whole life won't make sense

I always try to control myself what ever the situation maybe or what ever the result of my gambling is. I'm not the type of person where after betting and loosing it all will suddenly go on a rampage or a fit just because they lost a lot or perhaps worse they lost everything they have after betting all. Its my decision to bet and gamble so it will be my fault what ever result might appear on my action. But I always maintain a clear mind and proper judgement to always stop before anything becomes worse. Without self restrain it would be hard for myself to have a proper decision and without good decision making I might stumble and fall loosing everything I have with me.

Usually all website want to earn profit froms gamblers, so the problem happens when you deposit a small money and win a big money (usually from parlay). Your money will multiples 100 times maybe . Then they will block your account first, make withdraw becomes harder and cost long time. It happened to my friends sometime but not with me ( cause i never win a parlay ) .

Good for you, and you should keep that up. If you are a problematic gambler then that is progress right there. Like in smoking, you should try to quit it as much as possible. But also accept that it will not happen in an instant. So you are really making progress here since you are continually reducing your gambling habit. I guess not everybody can do the same, so good job my friend.

I think that comes with years. How we get old we have more obligations, wife and kids and managing house. I have less and less time for gambling, before I could spent hours without any distraction and now I'm rarely alone and free. Before I could play slots for hours, now in the evenings I try a bit poker, few hands, I play dices or slots a bit and I need to do so some tasks or I'm tired and I need to go to sleep cause I wake up in the morning.

Precisely with the increasing number of obligations, we can stop gambling faster. By prioritizing such obligations as providing for wives and children, for children's schooling, we are forced to set aside other things including the exclusion of gambling. By setting aside gambling, we will reduce our gambling habits and even stop.

Probably you can make that things happen, if you really a responsible father into your family then there's no doubt that you will set aside of being a gambler before, So that your family will live peacefully because you already totally change of being a good father from being addict before.

After that I tried my best to lie low because I don't want to make things worst. Now I can tell that I can manage to control myself I still do gamble but with moderation.

quitting for an addiction is really hard more of the victim
cant get through this process,but for me a CHAIN SMOKER or a
cigarette addict,i did quit instantly tomorrow i woke up deciding
to stop smoking and never try again.until now for the next 2 years
 i made it not taking even a single cigarette thats what we called
dedication and willingness,all gamblers can do it only if they are
ready for being free.

Not everybody has a problem gambling, but if you are a problem gambler, there is a support network they may help you. It starts with you recognizing the problem.

Start here:
http://www.gamblersanonymous.org/ga/content/20-questions

Let's work on this together, you're not alone and you don't need to suffer from your addiction. If you have solutions or have the compassion to provide moral support, please help by participating in this thread.
This might be a little help. but I make sure that addiction in the gambling game will be very difficult to remove. at this time a lot of people who feel addicted and can not get out of the zone that can ruin his life. the only way it might try to get out and get away from the various media that can connect us to the gambling game.
Bro! Ask me, IMO repairing from addiction of any sort gives a tough time. It is not the game or drugs that we are addicted to, it is those feelings those reasons that push us towards such things in the very first place. We are addicted to those emotions and want to experience them once more.
I agree with you, thats why its important to seek professional help if you feel you are addicted in gambling or in any related things. You cant solve it by yourself and you need the support of your family to overcome addiction. Sometimes its easy to advise to do this or do that but its not like that for the gambler itself.

No need to chase after the winds, play fo fun only, the more we cbase the loses the more we add additional of our loses, you're right that earning is much applicable on trading than in gambling, gambling is for fun alone. Winning is only a surprise reward that happens to be sometimes only.

Chasing loses would really always result into negative ones specially if we do really persevere that we would able to break even on what we loss recently. This is just really being designed for fun nothingless. If we do see gambling as a main source of income then we would really just regret in the end because no matter how hard we try we would eventually fail.

that is the reality , people too naive to consider gambling as a way to get rich.

it is the best way to make you get bankrupt instead earn a lot of money . crazy moment always happened, and the worst are when you realized have gamble with other people money , in the end you are in big trouble with huge debt.

This should be the character of every gamblers, to accept the fact that they are already addicted and willing to let go to have a more efficient life, gambling isn't bad as long as we don't take it to seriously, i mean to the point that we depend our incoke on is already a problem, having control and proper time management will ease the situation.

I agree with you, as long as we are playing gambling for fun and not risking our money, we can control our emotion to not become an addicted gambler. once we cannot control the feeling, we can get trap into gambling without we can leave the games. we have seen many examples in out there, so we should learn from this and stay awake to not become an addicting gambler.

That's the reality and there's nothing to gain if I'll stay on that imagination and will never accept our mistake.

I'm not a problem gambler, because most of the time when i go to gamble i always think the effect of gambling in our life especially when you get addicted in gambling. Even if i always go gamble i know how to manage and have some limitations, so i'm not a problem gamblers. Ever since, i gamble only just for pastimes when bored. If you already addicted the best thing you can do is focus on the other activities like sports.
